and fluoroscopy (realtime x-ray) use radiation to see through
tissues, allowing your doctor to evaluate the bones, lungs and
other tissues. Fluoroscopy uses contrast material to evaluate
the gastrointestinal tract and genitourinary tract as well as
to guide access to joints.
As with many other procedures, it is important to inform
the technologist if you may be pregnant.
Park Avenue Radiologists has installed state of the art digital
x-ray and fluoroscopy units so that your images are available
immediately to the interpreting and referring
physicians and can be stored electronically as well as compared
to your prior studies.
